SPONSORSHIP

Family Matters of Greater Washington is one of the oldest, nationally-accredited social service organizations in the Washington-Metro area.  Since our founding in 1882, Family Matters has been serving as the role of “family” to our community’s most vulnerable citizens.

As we go into our 137th year, our history has included great accomplishments in the region. Those accomplishments include, but are not limited to:

  • Forming the first local Boys Club
  • Establishing the city’s first multi-service senior center that offered protective services to the aging population and our first foster home
  • Establishing a Family Preservation program, “Elder Care Assist,” to help seniors stay active and live independently
  • Creating a Family and Schools Together program (FAST) to provide counseling services for students attending local elementary and high schools
  • Starting the “Bright Futures Program” created to ensure teen mothers learn the basic needs to care for their family
  • Being named “Outstanding Agency of the Year” by the Consortium for Child Welfare
  • Enhancing core programs which include mental and behavioral services, as well as home health care

In efforts to continue offering, improving and adding to the multitude of valuable services and community programs we provide, we have overhauled our sponsorship opportunitiescreating more options available for companies, organizations and individuals to show their support.

Family Matters of Greater Washington now has number of sponsorship opportunities for 2019.  Your sponsorship support helps Family Matters defray some of the costs associated with providing services to those in the community who we serve.

Dresses4Dreams (January-March, 2019)

Thursday, March 14, 5-8pm, FMGW Headquarters

Each year, Family Matters of Greater Washington hosts a special “Dresses4DreamsSuited4Dreams” event that provides formal wear — gowns/dresses, suits/tuxedos, and accessories to DC-area teens free of charge, to help make their high school prom a memorable and affordable experience. And we’re now gearing up for our next “D4D” event! Set for Thursday, March 14th, 2019, from 5:00pm-8:00pm at the FMGW’s offices in Washington, DC, we’ll be hosting a jazz reception for those who want to contribute to our efforts to provide dresses and suite for our young students. Two weeks later, our popular “Pop-Up Prom Boutique” where teens can choose their prom wear from donated items, will take place. We are now collecting new or gently-worn dresses, suits/tuxedos, ties, shoes, purses, jewelry, and other accessories. These collected items will be used to create our boutique and men’s shop for teenage girls and guys to select free items so they can attend prom confidently and in style.

Mental Health Awareness Month (May 2019)

In honor of Mental Health Awareness Month, Family Matters of Greater Washington has hosted a day of all things health related. Less than half of adult Americans with mental illness receive treatment. Family Matters’ events are an outlet for community members to receive the help they need, or just learn more about the importance of health. Since our inception in 1943, Family Matters’ Mental and Behavioral Health unit has improved the access and quality of care for area residents who are struggling with mental illness. FMGW will host a health fair “block party” in conjunction with Mental Health Awareness month within the vicinity of our clinic in Oxon Hill, MD.

Corporate Sponsor – $2,500

Send-A-Kid-to-Camp (SAKTC) Fundraiser (July 2019)

For 50 years, Family Matters of Greater Washington owned and operated Camp Moss Hollow, affectionately called “The Hollow,” located on 401 acres of incredibly beautiful woods, nestled in the foothills of the Shenandoah Valley in Markham, Virginia. Now, Family Matters has enhanced our popular camp program to one that sends youths enrolled in our mental and behavioral health program, matching certain inclusion criteria to camps located within the Maryland and Virginia area. Our goal is to provide therapeutic experiences that promote positive behavioral, emotional and social changes in the youth’s lives. The “Send a Kid to Camp” program directly benefits families that would not otherwise be able to afford to provide their children with the opportunity to attend camp. This youth development program is specially designed to enhance educational achievement, expand horizons and increase self-worth and self-esteem. Our hope is that the positive environment provided through the camping experience — along with the respite from daily stressors that are often encountered in the home and school — will have a lasting impact on the choices our youth make throughout the rest of their lives.

  • $7,000 – Sponsors one (1) child to send to the DC City Kids Wilderness Project in Jackson, Wyoming
  • $4,000 – Sponsors five (5) children to attend a summer camp for a week in the region
